MiMO Monday {Inspired By Fashion!}


Happy Monday, lovahs!

I woke up this morning with a whole new perspective...
-short work week
-only 3 days until Florida

...I got this!
Then instantly, I was like...crap, I have so much to do before then.
{my to-do list is a little overwelming at this point}


Moving on...I finally get to link up for MiMO Monday! Have you heard of it?!
 It is the cutest idea (good going Holly and Chelsea!) and I've been wanting to do it for a while. Basically, you find an outfit from Pinterest that inspires you, and you make it your own by using similar items in your closet.

Friday night, Billy and I had date night at a cute local restaurant and I knew I wanted to do my MiMO outfit for it. My inspiration came from the adorable Rachel (fellow blogger!) at Pink Peonies. She has the cutest fashion blog and I seriously adore her style.



This outfit was really easy to recreate and super inexpensive.
(although, I'd really like a pair of those Tory Burch boots Rachel is wearing..LOVE them)

Boots-UrbanOG
Boot socks-H&M
Skirt-Forever 21 ($9!)
Sweater-Forever 21 ($9)
Necklaces-Charming Charlies and Forever 21

How'd I do?!

The rest of our date night looked like this...






jumbo scallops (mine) and chicken pasta (hubs)





On Saturday, Holly had a bunch of us girls over to have a wine night and celebrate her blog's birthday ;) She had about 15 bottles of wine with cute namecards in front to say what each wine paired well with. It was so much fun and we even convinced some of the other girls to run the half marathon with us this May! So exciting.

Afterwards, Alicia forced convinved Kelsey and I to go watch this band play at a local bar. Turns out, this band was ah-mazing and we danced for 3 hours straight. I'm talkin' no sitting down for the whole time. Seriously, a great time had by all.




I wore my new yellow necklace
with a hot pink blouse.





{awful, awful quality but I was in a rush..}


How was your weekend?!

A special Happy Birthday to my stepmom, Judy!<3

*Tomorrow I'm sharing what goodies {aka: recipes} I made for our friends Superbowl party & also a really yummy appetizer I made for Holly's wine party (along with the giveaway winner) so make sure you check back for that :)
